About this Piece
The magnificent color of the Peridot crystals from Swarovski® creates an alluring background in this Tree of Life Pendant. The tree, both decorated with and surrounded by white Swarovski crystals, features a finely carved display of interwoven branches and roots stemming from a powerful trunk of sterling silver.
The Celtic Tree of Life
Known as crann bethadh to the ancient Celts, the Tree of Life (and its many variations across ancient cultures) represented rebirth and resilience, as well as balance and harmony, as symbolized by its branches rising towards the heavens and its roots descending into the earth. Whenever land was cleared to make way for a new farm or settlement, one large tree would be left alone in the middle as a sacred focal point (thus, cutting down an enemy's tree would be a huge blow to them). While trees provided resources and shelter, they were also a doorway to the spirit world.
